GE Renewable Energy has been selected by Kalyon to deliver its FLEXINVERTER solar power station technology for the 270 MW Karapinar phase II-A and 810 MW Karapinar phase II-B solar plant in Turkey. The scope of work includes design, engineering, project management, site management and commissioning. The project located in Turkey’s Konya Karapinar province is expected to reach commercial operations by December 2022. This project represents GE’s first FLEXINVERTER implementation outside the US. The FLEXINVERTER Solar Power Station (formerly known as LV5+ Solar Power Station) is an integrated containerized solution that combines a solar inverter, medium voltage power transformer, and an optional MV Ring Main Unit, all integrated in a standard 20-feet ISO high cube container. The technology is a smart solution that helps deliver a reliable, cost-effective, plug & play, factory-integrated power conversion platform for utility scale solar and storage applications. It helps reduce capital and operation costs and ensure a more reliable plant performance.GE will be localizing production of the mounting structures and DC-cables in Turkey. GE’s Grid Solutions business manufacturing site in Gebze, Turkey, will be producing transformers for integration in the solar inverter system.GE Renewable Energy has already completed the commissioning of the FLEXINVERTER solar power station technology for the 267 MW Karapinar phase I solar plant.The Karapinar solar power plant is part of the first Turkish solar YEKA tender launched in 2017 by the Ministry of Energy. It will enable the energy transition in the country and beyond, by helping Turkey to continue the expansion of renewable energy resources and commission 10 GW of solar capacity between 2017-27 and supporting our customer Kalyon to deliver more renewable energy to the world.
